Will it be easy to get a Software developer job in Montreal than rest of Canada

It could go both ways.If you know French, you might find Montreal a little less competitive and hence easy to get a software job.It might be paying less, but that kind of evens out because of low cost of living there too.

Still, there are fewer quality companies in Montreal than other major cities in Canada – language being one of the barriers.On the other hand it would be very hard to get by if you don’t know French.It’s not that people can’t speak English.

But French is dominant.Often software job descriptions would be in French and they state bilingualism preferred or even required.There are a few exceptions, but those are exactly that – exceptions and generally not with Java like technologies.

Speaking of this Montreal does have a Google office which I believe works mainly on Chrome and its GPU acceleration.But rumors are, they couldn’t expand owning to (you guess it), language requirements on a company of beyond certain number of employees.Still they have occasional openings / internships.
